Wireless headphones… Just recently, I was on an airplane, watching the in-flight movie and listening to the audio through my headphones. The person in the seat next to me needed to use the restroom, so I stood up to let them pass. Unfortunately, the cable got caught on the armrest and ripped the earbud out of my ear. It was painful, and when I sat back down and inspected my earbud, I noticed that one of the wires had come loose.

These portable audio devices have come a long way! I remember back in the 60s when they had a built-in radio (with a huge antenna) and required two batteries. As you can imagine, those early advancements in modern technology looked more like something from a cheesy science fiction Early Science Fiction On The Airwaves - Science Fiction in Radio Some might argue that Science Fiction has existed as long as civilization itself, as people gazed at the stars and wondered, "what if…" Juvenile Serials from the 1930s The first scifi old-time radio shows were primarily adventure serials aimed at young audiences, featuring a scientific theme, most notably Buck Rogers and… movie!

Drum kits are often associated with wildness and rebellion. However, like any musical instrument, they need to be properly cared for. Knowing how to maintain and care for your cymbals ensures that your drum kit looks great and retains its sound quality.

Traditionally, drum kits have been closely linked to rock and roll. Many iconic images depict artists kicking over their kits or mistreating their instruments. While this may seem cool in a photo, it’s not so cool when you have to pay for replacements. Although cymbals are designed to be struck with sticks, it doesn’t mean they can withstand any amount of abuse.

One of the main challenges for any musician is keeping instruments free from fingerprint marks. This is because the natural oils on your hands can leave marks on the cymbals. It’s crucial to clean them thoroughly and handle them as gently as possible.

When it comes to cleaning any instrument, it’s important to follow the proper methods and use suitable cleaning techniques. Avoid using furniture polish, as it is not intended for use on musical instruments. The manufacturer should be able to recommend the appropriate specialist cleaner that is suitable for your cymbals. …
